Mumbai: On Monday, a 32-year-old man employed with cab aggregator got arrested for allegedly stalking TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor over the past few months. The Hindustan Times report stated that the police found accused Sudhir Rajender Singh following Ekta more than 30 times, including to Juhu temple and her gym. Police further stated that Sudhir wanted to befriend her and get a job at her firm.

Reportedly, the police arrested Sudhir Singh soon after Ekta Kapoor's company filed a complaint. A police officer quoted the leading daily, "We received a complaint saying Kapoor had repeatedly tried to ignore the man, but he kept following her across the city." "The most recent instance took place a few days ago when Kapoor had gone to a temple in Juhu. Singh followed her and tried to approach her, but was stopped by Kapoor’s security guards,” the police officer added.

Despite being warned by the guards, Sudhir Singh used to wait for Ekta Kapoor outside her gym. The Amboli police have registered an FIR against Sudhir Singh and started looking for him. The officer further said, "We used technical surveillance to track him down to Veera Desai Road. During interrogation, we found out the number of times he had followed her."

Speaking about checking Sudhir Singh's phone, the officer further added, "We need to find out how he got information about Kapoor’s whereabouts and schedule. We will submit a charge sheet soon."
